And whilst some predicted a nostalgic collection of classic Valentino looks he wowed the fashion pack with a modern, fashion forward collection that included jumpsuits and metallic mini sheath dresses, as well as a good measure of updated, signature red and black ruffled column dresses and evening gowns. "Forget sentiment", said Elleuk.com's editor Melissa Dick, "this is a beautiful, modern collection to die for." Whilst Valentino won't be taking his final bow on the catwalk until next year when he shows his last Valentino Couture collection in January, his legacy is already clear. In the word's of Elle's Fashion Features Editor Jamie Huckbody, "Beautifully made clothes for women who want to look like women. With forty years experience behind him, Valentino knows true style."
